Rachel Leket-Mor, ASU Libraries Jewish Studies Bibliographer, joins Fred and co-host Mimmo Bonanni for a fascinating discussion on the history and impact of Israeli pulp fiction. Rachel provides an overview of the 300 pulp books available from the ASU Libraries Archives and Special collections and what this unique collection of westerns, sci-fi, detective, World War II, and adventure stories reveal about Israeli culture during the 1950s and 1960s.
The ISRAPULP Collection at ASU Libraries, the only repository of its kind outside of Israel, is now open for scholars, offering hundreds of titles from the 1930s and on. For more information visit the links below and visit the pulp collection at ASU Libraries Archives and Special Collections.
